Q&A: How Can I Ease Baby's Gas Pains?

How can I ease baby's gas pains?

All babies get gas—it's a natural by-product—but some babies are bothered by gas more than others. If you suspect baby is uncomfortable because of gas, you can help expel it by carefully bicycling her legs or giving her a gentle belly massage. If she seems to be in pain and is crying frequently, call your pediatrician to determine if she's experiencing other problems that should be medically treated.
